Panel discussion following a showing of the documentary "Digital Dharma" at the Internet Archive.About "Digital Dharma":One Man's Mission to Save a Culture
When ancient writings of Sanskrit and Tibetan texts vanish during the political turmoil of the 1950s and 1960s, the history of a whole society-–its beliefs, customs and sense of enlightenment-–is in danger of disappearing. Enter destiny in the form of American pacifist E. Gene Smith, a Mormon from Utah, the unlikely leader of an effort to rescue, preserve and share these early insights of mankind’s consciousness, from the medical to the mystical.
Crossing multiple borders – geographic, political and philosophical – Digital Dharma is an epic story of a cultural rescue and how one man’s mission became the catalyst for an international movement to provide free access to the story of a people.

Digital Dharma Discussion
The audience members who participated do not sound very present in the mix. In fact they sound way off mic, but what I could hear which came from the voice talent on stage was interesting. I give this discussion three stars.
